Overall this hotel met expectations and was a good place to stay. The location is easy to access but there isn't really much in the immediate vicinity, fine for a business trip. The staff are friendly and check-in went smoothly. Parking is not free for hotel guests. The lobby and bar area are nice, though the bar didn't open until... More

Great check in, very nice room. Parking isn't free though but most hotels in that area charge for parking. Indoor pool was a bummer - this is Texas - we have mild winters. Its also on the small side but oh well....I would stay again but perhaps in the winter when I don't care about the pool.

Pros: Close to the Galleria, the hotel is easy to find/get to and from, lots of sidewalks and safe areas to jog and walk, room had all the basics and no frills. Cons: My thermostat had two settings: Hot and muggy or ice cold. I understand that Houston is a hot and humid city, but my trip took place in... More

The positive: Staff was very friendly and the location is good. The negatives: rooms are small; rooms are noisy; hall was, frankly, dirty although the room itself was clean; parking was awkward. And, the place is just trying too hard to be trendy .... Website was so busy being hip that it was hard to find basic information like check... More

We checked in the hotel right on New Year's Eve with a small glitch as my bedding arrangement had not been met. However, Josh, the receptionist had done everything he could from then on to make my 9 day stay there as fabulous and comfortable as it could be! He made sure that all my needs were fulfilled and offered... More

The room smaller than an efficiency. No room service or valet parking. The height in the parking garage is lower than what it is as my roof rail on my vehicle struck it. Then the parking arm (gate) came down as I was trying to back out. The guy at the desk said the GM would be calling me about... More

A few friends and I stayed here for New Year's Eve weekend...overall great stay! Staff was friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. Only problem was by the time we got there to check in, they didn't have any rooms with 2 beds left (which is what we booked), so we had to sleep in a room with one... More

In general, Aloft is a great option for anyone who appreciates the no frills comfort that this limited service brand affords. At the Westheimer / Houston property, room size is impressive, elevators are responsive, front desk service is efficient, and sound-proofing is above average, though the powerful door-shutting mechanisms make for unnecessary hallway noise. Location is very good. For our... More

This hotel is conveniently located to the Galleria (walking distance). Parking is secure and about 15 bucks a night with in and out privileges. The bar was lightly staffed, with one bartender, but this was appropriate for the few customers there. I was a little disappointed with the service, especially given the lack of customers. The biggest drawback to this... More

Aloft is a very specific concept, don't expect a classic breakfast. Not meanging the breakfast is bad or anything, just different. The location is great in a very good area in houston. Staff were very friendly and the room was very clean. you dont get a bath, but a spacious shower. what I liked the most was the bed, the... More
